500 HITS FOR ChicagoismynewBlog!

Posted by ChicagoismynewBlog! on April 9, 2009

I decided to hold off on the celebrations for every hundred hits at ChicagoismynewBlog in fear that it would be a little overkill.  BUT, now that we’ve reached the 500 hits milestone, I figure it isn’t that big of a deal.  Next celebration will be at 1,000 hits.  Lets keep spreading the word about ChicagoismynewBlog!

Flair Tower mid-construction in River North

Posted by ChicagoismynewBlog! on April 9, 2009

In a time where new projects are being put on hold indefinitely, Flair Tower is moving full steam ahead.  One of the reasons for this is because Flair Tower is strictly a rental apartment building so they didn’t have to struggle with trying to make sales.  Flair Tower is located at 222 W. Erie Street so during your morning and nightly commute, you may have noticed something being built right next to the “el” tracks.  When completed in spring 2010, Flair Towerwill have 198 rental apartments with amenities like a dog walk, concierge, full fitness center, and even daily coffee service.  Plus, to make things even better, the building is seeking Silver LEED Certification.
